The OTTAKRINGER Beer Horse by MushroomBrain The OTTAKRINGER Beer Horse by MushroomBrain
acrylics on canvas 50 x 50 cm

The story: the story of the OTTAKRINGER horses area an intrigueing story, it all started when the Emperor of Austria invented the best beer in the world anno 1837...

At the start the Emperor had to go around and taste the beer on all his destilleries to make sure that his beer kept the right standard to be released to his minions...

One day when the emperor was on a state visist to the king of Swaziland he got a tip from the king that the had really long necked horses in his land with an extremly keen taste because of their long necks and tongues...

The Kind of Swaziland was a wise man and understood his collegue´s problems and stress in testing all the OTTAKRINGER beer every day to make sure it kept the right standard, so he gave the Emperor two of theese OTTAKRINGER horses so they could do his job in testing all the OTTAKRINGERS...

The OTTAKRINGER horses was shipped to Austria and was used in the OTTAKRINGER industrie, they really liked it but often had problems standing up on their long spindely legs after a full day of testing...

At the beginning of the First World War (then only called the Great War becuase no one had read about the second one)...

Anyway at the start of the first world war the had grown in numbers and someone said that their numbers in the stable of the OTTAKRINGER brewery was between 19-23 individuals...

The sad part of the story is that they all died during an allied bombing raid becuase the frensh thought they were some kind of secret weapon...

...it all happened in 1918 the same day as the emperor drew his last breath, all the OTTAKRINGER horses died at the same time as the Habsburg empire started to disentigrate...

...a very sad story, but today the OTTAKRINGER horses are legendary here in Vienna...


German version: Die Geschichte: die Geschichte von der Ottakringer Pferde Bereich eine intrigueing Geschichte, alles begann, als der Kaiser von Österreich das beste Bier der Welt anno 1837 erfunden ...

Zu Beginn hatte der Kaiser zu gehen um und Geschmack des Bieres auf allen seinen Destillerien um sicherzustellen, dass sein Bier den richtigen Standard zu seinem Diener freigegeben gehalten ...

Eines Tages, als der Kaiser auf einem Stand visist an den König von Swasiland wurde bekam er einen Tipp aus dem König, dass die wirklich langhalsigen Pferden hatte in seinem Land mit einem extrem scharfen Geschmack wegen ihrer langen Hälse und Zungen ...

Die Art des Swasiland war ein weiser Mann und verstand seine collegue Probleme und Stress bei der Prüfung alle Ottakringer Bier täglich, ob es weiterhin das Recht Standard, so gab er dem Kaiser zwei dieser OTTAKRINGER Pferde, damit sie seinen Job tun könnte bei der Prüfung alle OTTAKRINGERS ...

Die Ottakringer Pferde nach Österreich geliefert wurde und war in der Ottakringer Industrie verwendet werden, sie mochte es wirklich, aber oft Probleme hatte Aufstehen auf ihren langen Beinen spindely nach einer vollen Testtag ...

Zu Beginn des Ersten Weltkriegs (damals nur als der Erste Weltkrieg, weil niemand über das zweite gelesen hatte) ...

Jedenfalls zu Beginn des ersten Weltkrieges hatte die zahlenmäßig gewachsen und jemand sagte, dass ihre Zahl in den Stall von der Ottakringer Brauerei zwischen 19-23 Personen wurde ...

Der traurige Teil der Geschichte ist, dass sie alle starben während eines alliierten Bombenangriffs, weil die Pommes dachte, sie waren eine Art Geheimwaffe ...

... Es geschah alles im Jahr 1918 am selben Tag wie der Kaiser zog seinen letzten Atemzug, starb der Ottakringer alle Pferde in der gleichen Zeit wie die Habsburger begann disentigrate ...

... Eine sehr traurige Geschichte, aber heute die Ottakringer Pferde sind legendär hier in Wien ...

I like the composition and the colors. The combination of yellow and blue makes the picture look contrast. The horse looks funny and sad at the same time (maybe because of the story).
Are you satisfied now?:)
